I started playing poker many years ago but i never figured out all the strategies of other players ... can we put some nice simple strategies to help everyone on ♠️CardsChat♦️...
Yea thats what i do as wel ...play every hand good as you can ...but sometimes i lose because of tournaments take too long and i get frustrated------------------- ♤♧◇♡The best strategy is to play every hand as good as you can.
To not alter your normal game unless there is a player which deviates a lot on the tight or aggressive side.
Also it's crucial to understand when your chips are more valuable and will give you a higher prize by folding (ICM).
Since I'm in a less flippant, devil-may-care mood than the last time I posted here, I'll offer you some more serious (and more expensive) advice...
When playing an MTT there are three words I try to keep in mind, in this order;
• HAND SELECTION
By keeping in mind this 'mantra' (those three words in that order) our decisions are made easier and exactly how powerful our holding is in any given circumstance can be assessed in regards to positive expected value.
Start the early stages tighter but always be on the look out for and capitalise on spots were you can rake in chips.
Yes, survival is critical but so is building your stack as the blinds increase.
Using a TAG (occasionally even a hyper-TAG) strategy as default is, in my experience thus far, higher expected value but we can't always do the same thing and it's imperative in my opinion to switch up your play style in some way or other to avoid becoming totally predictable.
When you have lots of chips you can open wider, the fewer chips you have the more selective & careful you need to be.
One hand at a time, always play the player over the hand. So you need to be observant whilst not in hands and gain information when unable to gain chips.
Distraction is the enemy of concentration, get in the zone.
Be realistic about your results, it's very difficult to win large MTT's, even pros only win a fraction of the tournaments they enter.
By understanding you will always 'lose' more tournies than you'll win it's easier not to get emotionally invested and avoid going on tilt when things don't go your way- focus on the things you can control, not those you cannot.
When things don't go to plan, you don't crush your way to 1st place and dance in a shower of roses...
